Make the best of today ~

Hello my friends!
How are you?!

I truly hope you are enjoying the summer season ~
or whatever season it is in your country!

Life is a little quiet right now for me.
However, it is so important for me to reach out
and talk to my friends with RA.

I may not be writing as much right now ~
But, know I think of all of you everyday!
I'm praying for you, and am hoping each and everyone
of you is thriving.   

I've missed my regular blogs
poems and communication.
But I am here to say hi and I hope you
are doing well and living and thriving
as pain free as possible.

I saw my Doctor today ~ my PCP,
She is leaving...I am so sad
but it is right for her.
She said something profound to me...
something that made me write to you today.

She said, "I am said to be a healer...
but you are a healer too."  Whoa.  Wow.
From my doctor, that is pretty cool.
She knows I write my blogs for all of you.

My friends, I hope, everyday
you never give up, you try one more time,
you make plans with a friend for coffee or a movie~
get out for a short walk, listen to a friend...
hug your kids ~ kiss your partner,
ask for help from your family,
join a gentle yoga class or something that is your speed.

Take care of you...by having fun with others you love!

Make the best of today and everyday, my friends.
We only get one shot at this day.   Let's do it right!

Healing hugs,
